Reviewers write that the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover has one of the most opulent cabins in its class, and they are also impressed with its acceleration and off-road capability.
According to automotive journalists, the 2015 Range Rover's standard supercharged V6 engine delivers respectable acceleration, and critics note that the available supercharged V8's acceleration is spectacular. Acceleration in both models is aided by the Range Rover's standard eight-speed automatic transmission, which reviewers say delivers rapid gear changes. The 2015 Range Rover with the V6 engine gets 17/23 mpg city/highway, according to the EPA, which is very good for the class. Auto writers report that the Range Rover is incredibly agile off-road, as well as composed and comfortable on the pavement. They think it has impressive handling for a large SUV, with little body lean in turns. Some auto journalists think the steering feels a little heavy at highway speeds. They are impressed by the Range Rover’s strong brakes.
Test drivers report that the 2015 Land Rover Range Rover's cabin is decked out from top to bottom in first-rate materials, which help make the Range Rover's interior one of the most opulent in the class. Reviewers say the front seats offer superb comfort and excellent outward visibility. They add that the back seats are also a pleasant place to spend time, especially if you're in one of the extended wheelbase models, which can comfortably accommodate even the tallest of occupants. The Range Rover has less cargo space than most other luxury large SUVs, but most rivals have three rows of seats. Standard features include navigation, tri-zone automatic climate control, an 8-inch touch-screen display, leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, a 13-speaker Meridian audio system, a rearview camera and Bluetooth. Available features include 19- or 29-speaker Meridian audio systems, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, a surround-view camera system, a refrigerated front center console, quad-zone automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control and a new driver assistance package that includes lane departure warning and parallel park assist. Critics think the touch-screen display is confusing and can respond slowly to user commands, but they applaud the rich sound quality of any of the available Meridian sound systems.
